The  genealogy  of  Littleton  was  compiled  by  George  C. 
FuRBER  in  1896  and  printed  in  1897-8.  A  fire  destroyed 
the  work  in  1898  and  made  necessary  a  reprint,  which 
was  prepared  under  the  supervision  of  Ezra  S.  Stearns. 
The  extent  of  the  errata  is  chiefly  due  to  incorrect  material 
furnished  by  individuals  concerning  their  ancestry.

The  word  Ainsworth  is  derived  from  Haines,  the  modern  form  of  the 
ancient  personym,  Ainneph,  and  worth,  the  Anglo-Saxon  term  for  a 
homestead.  The  family  in  Eng.  were  long  located  at  Ainsworth,  in  the 
parish  of  Middleton,  hundred  of  Salford,  county  palatine  of  Lancaster, 
and  undoubtedly  took  their  name  from  the  locality.  In  spelling  it  is 
sometimes  con-upted  to  Ensworth.  The  earliest  of  the  name  in  New 
Eng.  were  Anchor  Ainsworth  of  Boston,  and  Daniel  Ainsworth  of  Rox- 
bury,  Mass.  They  were  in  the  colony  as  early  as  1647.  The  tradition 
is  that  Edward  Ainsworth,  the  emigrant  ancestor  of  the  L.  family, 
came  to  America  on  invitation  of  his  uncle.  Daniel,  of  Roxbury.  By 
some  mishap  in  navigation  the  A'essel  in  which  he  and  a  brother  took 
passage  was  wrecked  on  the  coast  of  Georgia.  All  were  drowned 
except  Edward  Ainsworth,  who  saved  himself  by  clinging  to  a  rock  on 
the  shore,  which  is  still  called  Stranger's  Rock.  (See  Ainsworth  Gen- 
ealogy, Francis  J.  Parker,  Boston.)

1.  Joseph  Batcheller  came  to  this  countr}'  from  Canterbury,  Eng., 
in  1636,  with  his  w.  Elizabeth,  one  child,  and  three  servants,  and  settled 
in  that  part  of  Salem  now  known  as  Wenham,  in  Essex  Co.,  Mass. 
His  bro.  Henry  and  family  and  his  bro.  John  accompanied  him. 
The  records  of  the  Huguenot  parish  of  Canterbury,  recently  published, 
preserve  significant  evidence  that  Joseph  Batcheller  In-  descent  and 
kinship  was  closely  identified  with  the  Huguenot  people.  His  ch.  were  : 
(1)  Mark,  slain  by  the  Indians,  Dec.  15,  1675  ;  (2)  John  ;  (3)  Elizabeth, 
m.  James  Davis  ;  (4)  Hannah,  b.  1644,  m.  .John  Mariner.  April,  1665  ; 
(5)  Joseph,  bap.  Aug.  22,  1647,  d.  1699.     Joseph,  the  first  ancestor  in 

38  Batchellor.       , 

this  coiintiy,  was  one  of  the  original  members  of  the  church  in  Wenham, 
organized  Oct.  8,  1644.  He  was  the  first  representative  of  Wenliam  in 
tlieGen.  Court,  in  1644  (2  N.  H.  Hist.  Soc,  215).  In  respect  to  the 
date  of  the  death  of  Joseph  Batclieller,  the  histories  of  Grafton  and 
Sutton  are  in  error.  Tlie  church  record  seems  to  estabhsh  that  liis  de- 
cease occurred  as  is  stated  in  the  follovving  extract :  In  the  record  of  a 
case  of  church  discipline,  under  date  of  11  of  the  8  mo.,  1647,  occurs 
this  passage  (p.  84,  Wenham  Church  Records)  :  "In  ye  mesne  space  it 
pleased  God  to  take  to  himself  our  brother  Batchel.,  a  man  wise,  mod- 
erate, and  ver}-  able  to  be  helpful  in  such  cases."  Says  anotlier 
authority  :  "  He  was  a  prominent  and  useful  man  in  the  plantation  " 
(Hist,  of  Wenham,  pp.  28,  29).    He  d.  in  Wenham,  March,  1647  (O.  S.).

3.  David  Batchellor,  son  of  John  -,  b,  in  Wenham,  Mass.  m. 
Susannah  Whipple.  He  was  Town  Clerk  of  Wenham,  1744-5-6-7. 
With  him  came  the  change  in  the  orthography  of  the  surname.  It  had 
been  Batclieller,  with  an  e  in  the  last  syllable,  but  afterwards  it  was 
Batchellor,  the  e  becoming  o  b}'  the  peculiar  way  e  was  written  at  that 
time,  thus  a  a.  So  the  name  Lee  appeared  to  be  Loo.  Batcheller  be- 
came Batchellor.      (Hist,  of  Sutton,  Mass.  ;  Plist.  of  Wenham,  p.  103.)

and  commenced  the  study  of  law  with  Hon.  Hany  Hibbard,  in  Bath, 
in  1843.  Dart.  Coll.  gave  him  the  degree  of  LL.D.  in  1880.  He  was 
admitted  to  the  Bar  in  Lancaster  in  1846,  and  at  once  commenced  the 
practice  of  law  in  L.,  where  he  has  since  res.  The  law  firms  he  has 
been  a  member  of  are  H.  &  G.  A.  Bingham,  1852  to  1859  :  Woods  & 
Binghams,  1859  to  1862  ;  H.  &  G.  A.  Bingham,  1862  to  1870  ;  Bing- 
ham &  Mitchell  1874  to  1879  ;  Bingham,  :\Iitchell  (J.  M.)  &  Batch- 
ellor,  July  1,  1879,  to  July  1,  1882  ;  Bingham,  Mitchells.  &  Batchellor

and  both  firms  have  been  continued  from  the  dates  above  named  to  the 
present  time,  although  Mr.  Bingham  has  been  less  active  in  his  law  busi- 
ness in  his  later  years,  having  given  his  time  and  attention  more  and  more 
largely  to  recreation,  travel,  and  literature.  In  his  legislative  service, 
covering  a  longer  number  of  terms  than  any  of  his  contemporaries  in  this 
State,  he  often  participated  in  debate  with  carefully  prepared  arguments, 
and  not  unfrequently  contributed  formal  reports,  einbod3ing  tlie  results 
of  careful  research  and  reasoning.  These  ma\'  be  consulted  in  official 
and  newspaper  reports  of  the  Legislatures.  Mr.  Bingham's  briefs  in 
cases  argued  in  the  law  terms  of  the  Supreme  Court  are  contained 
in  every  volume  of  the  N.  H.  Reports  from  the  twentieth  —  fift}-  vol- 
umes —  published  and  unpublished.  Many  of  his  legal  arguments 
have  been  published  in  full  in  newspapers  and  pamphlets.  His  ad-

C.  (Caperton)   Patton,  b.   in   Union,  W.  Va.,  June   22,    1842,  dau.  of 
U.   S.    Senator   Allen  T.   Caperton,   and    widow  of  Judge   James  F. 
Patton.     He   was  educated  at  the  public  schools,  at  Peacham,   Vt , 
Academy,    and    at    Marietta,    Ohio,    College,    but   did    not   graduate. 
He  read  for  his   profession   with  Judge  Joseph  Miller  at  Chilicothe, 
Ohio,  with  his  brother  Harry  Bingham  at  Littleton  from  May,  1848, 
to  Sept.  1849.     He  returned  to  Ohio  and  studied  with  Judge  Miller 
until    he   was    admitted  to  the   Bar  in   Georgetown,   Ohio,    May   21, 
1850.     Immediately  he  opened  a  law  office  at  McArthur,  the  county- 
seat  of  the  then    new  county  of  Vinton,    where  he  remained   in  an 
active  and   successful    practice    eleven   years.      During   a   portion  of 
this  period  he  was  a  member  of  the  law  firms  of  Hewett  &  Bingham 
and   Bingham    &   Hamilton.      In  November  of  the   first  3'ear  of  his 
practice  a  vacancy  occurred   in   the  office  of  Prosecuting  Attorney, 
and  he  was  complimented  with  the  appointment,  and  was  re-elected  in 
18.51  and  1853.     He  represented  Vinton  and  Jackson  Counties  in  the 
House  of  Representatives  (Democrat),  1856,  1857,  and  refused  a  re- 
election.    In  1858  he  was  a  candidate  on  the  Democratic  ticket  for 
Judge  of  the  Court  of  Common  Pleas  for  the  Judicial  District,  and  with 
the  remainder  of  the  ticket  he  was  defeated.     He, was  a  delegate  from 
the    Eleventh   Congressional   District   to   the    memorable   Democratic 
National  Convention  of  1860,  held  at  Charleston,  S.  C,  and  by  ad- 
journment  at   Baltimore,    Md.       The    activity    of    the   young   lawyer 
surpassed  the   growth  of  the  new  county  in  which  he  labored.     He 
sought  a  more  extended  field  for  the  practice  of  his  profession.     In 
1861    he  removed  to  Columbus,  Ohio.     From  1863  to  1868  he  was  a 
member  of  the  Board  of  Education  of  Columbus,  and  from  1867  to  1871 
the  Solicitor  of  the  city.     In  1868  he  was  an  efficient  chairman  of  the 
State  Democratic  Executive  Committee,  and   was  again  a  delegate  to 
the  Democratic  National  Convention  at  St.  Louis  in  1876.     In  his  pro- 
fessional labors  at  Columbus  he  was  successively  a  member  of  the  law 
firms  of  Bingham  &  Hewett,  Wilson  &  Bingham,  Bingham  &  McGuffy, 
and  Bingham  &  Smith.     These  were  years  of  professional  activity  and 
reward,  and  his  promotion  to  the  bench  was   not  long  deferred.     In 
April,  1873,  he  was  elected  without  opposition  Judge  of  the  Court  of 
Common  Pleas  for  the  Fifth  Judicial  I)istrict,  and  by  re-election  was 
continued  on  the  bench  of  that  court  until  1887,  when  he  was  appointed 
by  President  Cleveland  Chief  Justice  of  the  Supreme  Court  of  the  Dis- 
trict of  Columbia,  which  position   he   holds   at  the   present  time.     His 
published  works  of  greater  moment-  are  his  opinions  appearing  in  the 
Reports  of  the  court  over  which  he  presides.

of  Mich.  He  was  director  of  the  American  School  of  Classical  Studies

Corona,  and  of  The  Antigone  of  Sophocles.  He  is  an  ordained  Cong,

The  ancestry  of  that  branch  of  the  Douglass  family  which  res.  in  L. 
is  by  no  means  complete.  From  the  best  information  obtainable  the 
first  American  ancestor  was,  — 

1.  AViLLiAM  Douglass,  who  became  engn^ed  in  au  insurrection  and 
fled  from  Scotland  to  Boston,  Mass.,  in  1745,  w^as  a  son  or  bro,  of 
Archibald,  20th  Lord  Douglass.  He  became  a  shipowner  in  Portland, 
Me,  where  he  d.  in  1779,  leaving  two  sons,  James,  — captain,  lost  at 
sea,  —  and  Samuel. 

2.  Samuel  Douglass  was  a  Rev.  soldier,  but  what  organization  he 
was  identified  with  it  has  been  impossible  to  ascertain.  A  Capt.  Sam- 
uel Douglass  from  Townsend,  Mass.,  commanded  a  co.  in  Col.  James 
Prescott's  Regt.,  but  whether  it  is  the  same  Samuel  that  res.  in  L.  or 
not,  cannot  be  positively  stated,  but  there  are  reasons  for  believing 
that  the  two  were  identical.  Townsend  records  show  that  Capt.  Samuel 
of  Slip  Town,  N.  H.  (now  Temple),  m.  :\Iay  29,  1764,  Molly,  dau.  of 
John  and  Sarah  (Farrar)  Conant  of  Tpwnsead,  Mass.,  and  had  two  ch. 

168  Douglass  —  Dow. 

bora  there, — John,  b,  July  1,17G5;  Samuel,  b.  Aug.  22,  1767.  He 
was  a  resident  of  Temple,  1777.  The  Samuel  who  res.  in  L.  had  three 
sons,  —  Samuel,  Simeon,  and  John,  —  but  tradition  says  John  was  the 
youngest,  and  b}'  a  second  w.,  which,  if  true,  would  prove  that  the  two 
Samuels  were  not  identical.  It  is  probable  that  tradition  is  wrong ; 
that  John  was  the  oldest  son,  and  that  Capt.  Samuel  was  the  Samuel 
who  res.  in  L.  with  his  son  John,  and  d.  in  L.  about  1816. 

3.  John  Douglass,  son  of  Samuel^,  m.  Lydia,  dau.  of  Obadiah 
Morse  (See),  b.  in  Methuen,  Mass.,  d.  in  Lowell,  Mass.  He  res.  in  L.

a  year.  *^Mr.  Dow  remembered  the  place  of  his  birth  by  giving  the  fine

The  origin  of  the  name  is  variously  described.  One  authority  says 
it  is  from  "  Keele "  and  "  Bourn,"  which  signif}'  cold  water.  An- 
other, that  it  is  from  "chill"  or  "  cele  "  and  "bourne,"  a  brook  or 
torrent.  Another,  that  it  is  from  the  German  words  "  Klihle  "  "  Burn," 
signifying  cool  stream.  Kiihle  is  pronounced  "Kiel"  or  "Keel."
